Madeline is a vivacious young leader at Colorado School of Mines. Help Greenhouse Scholars support her as she earns her diploma.

Madeline is a recognized leader in her school and community. In high school she served as President of the National Honors Society and Engineers without Borders and also held additional leadership positions in theatre and tennis. Showcasing her motivation and drive, Madeline organized a trip to Costa Rica, successfully navigating the difficult process of a school-sponsored trip abroad. Enthusiastic and outgoing, Madeline harnesses her positive energy and has used it to help others by organizing a school-wide blood drive, hosting free tennis clinics for low-income youth, and mentoring freshmen students. She managed all her activities while maintaining an exceptional academic record. Squeezing the most out of her time, Madeline never hesitates to try new things and aims to learn as much as she can along the way.

Madeline’s ambition may have no limits, but her finances do. Madeline is a Greenhouse Scholar. Greenhouse Scholars provides comprehensive personal and financial support to high-performing, under-resourced college students.

Our support of Madeline and other Greenhouse Scholars averages $7,000 per year.

Many thanks to the BOULDER FLATIRONS ROTARY for their gift of $1,000 towards Madeline's Greenhouse Scholars funding and network of services.

Your individual donations towards the remaining costs will enable us to continue to support Madeline and students like her.

78% of our scholars are first-generation college students and have an average family income of just $28,705.

Greenhouse Scholars uses a Whole Person approach to offer intellectual, academic, personal, professional and financial support to high-achieving, under-resourced college students. Support includes one-on-one mentorship, access to a vast professional network, assistance in securing internships, an annual three-day leadership training symposium, and peer support, in addition to financial grants. While the average GPA of first-generation college students is a 2.6 (with a 2.8 for all students), Greenhouse Scholars average a 3.4 GPA.

Our network of support services means the day our Greenhouse Scholars leave college, they’ll be prepared to succeed in their professional endeavors and make significant contributions in their communities.
